When a parent wishes to relocate with a child, the other parent may object to the move, even if the parent proposing relocation has sole custody. Arizona statute addresses this frequently encountered issue but the statute cannot address each case’s specific set of circumstances. Under certain circumstances a parent may move out of state with the child. Child relocation disputes can become complex as competing factors and interests come into play. Because of this, an evidentiary hearing is often needed to determine whether the child can move, future child-access arrangements and which party is responsible for transportation costs.
